Thatta Payaru Sadam

Thatta Payaru Sadam is a traditional delicacy from Tamil Nadu cuisine especially from Coimbatore region. This rice variety is a one pot recipe and can be prepared quickly with just pantry staples.The hero ingredient of this dish is black eyed peas or lobia also known as thatta payaru or Karamani in Tamil. For this recipe I have used white Karamani you can use red karamani too.

For preparing this dish the thatta payaru is washed and soaked overnight (but if you forget to do so it you can soak it hot water along with baking soda in hot pack casserole for 2 hours and then use it).

Now in a pressure cooker a basic tempering is given and the shallots and tomatoes are sautéed well and then soaked rice and thatta payaru is added followed by salt , sambar powder and 3 cups water (make sure to use the rice soaked water too).This mixture is pressure cooked for 3 whistles and pressure is allowed to release naturally, thats it you have made yourself a delicious healthy thatta payaru sadam.

This thatta payaru sadam pairs well with pickles, appalam, potato fry etc.
